About Leslie

Ever since I was a young child I had an extreme interest in caring for others. I love doing work that has the potential to make a positive impact in someone's life. I am a very compassionate, caring and a patient person. The thing I love the most about being a caregiver is seeing someone else smile whom I have tended to, knowing I've made their day better as well as creating a great trustworthy dependable relationship with them one-on-one.
